Regardless on how the numbers look on various tests we continue to get
results from Leica Noctilux users which seem to indicate the viability of
the lens.
The recent being Tina's.
In Memory extensively by Rei Shinozuka.
I've used it extenevsly not just wide open but at all f stops.
Ted I think mainly uses when he shots Leica M that lens.

I've heard of people calibrating the lens to a camera body to make sure it
works well. And other lenses to the 75 1.4 perhaps. But most of use have not
needed to.

Leica's not going to come out with a super high priced lens like the
Noctilux and make it go out of focus when you stop down a few.
Could they really be that stupid?
I don't think so.
I'd get yours fixed if it did that.

When my stuff breaks or doesn't work like it should I get it fixed.
